Seagreen

It's raining cats and dogs today.


I awoke this morning to thunder, lightning and flooding in our front paddock, and the knowledge that I didn't have to be anywhere today, except here at home.

Blissful...I disappeared for an hour or more at my loom and finished this.

I think I will use it as a table runner. It was hard to capture the colours on my camera with the kitchen lights on and rainy gloom outside, but I can describe it as seagreen. I used white crochet cotton for the warp and a mix of handspun, hand dyed yarns and some silk for the weft.
We have had a lot of news and music of Michael Jackson recently on the radio, as I expect there has been all over the radio stations everywhere. I am not a huge fan but I do like this song and I heard it today and felt touched......it is good.

That is a beautiful table runner, reminds me of the surf running up on the shore.
